David Sylvian and Related Sounds

This weeks Twisted Groove features the music of David Sylvian and artists who, in some ways, echo his sound. I’ve recently had him on my mind. An old friend from my home in New Hampshire shared with me a connection to David Sylvian. My friend’s son is dating the musician’s daughter.

We all had blast!
